5.0 out of 5 stars A new revelation from a an expansive mind, 9 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Place in the Country (Hardcover)
I have been a fan of Sebald's work for a few years now, having starting with his "Rings of Saturn" at the suggestion of a wise friend. No one else writes like Sebald. No one else captures that sense of displacement, of living in the world and yet not quite belonging anywhere in it, the way that he does. When I heard that there was a new book coming out, I couldn't believe it. I logged onto Amazon.us (I'm an American) and was saddened to find that "A Place in the Country" wouldn't be released in the U.S. until February 2014! Knowing it was already out in the U.K., I went to Amazon.uk and within days, the book was in my hands. Wonderful essays about the writers (and one artist) who influenced Sebald's work. It's always a great gift to discover that a favorite author, who has passed, has one more manuscript out there.
